Useful Tips for Best Results
•
We recommend checking the garment care label for manufacturer
recommendations before steaming. We also recommend testing
the garment and strength of the colour on an unobtrusive area
such as an inner seam.
Gently pull down on the bottom of the garment while steaming.
Gently press the fabric brush into fabric while making slow passes.
To put crisp edges on trousers and shirts use the pleat attachment.
Avoid contact between the steam head and silk or velvet.
Certain garments are smoothed more easily on the reverse side.
Heavy fabrics may need to be steamed for longer.
If you are using the steam head at a position close to the ground,
raise the hose frequently in order to avoid the formation of
condensation. A gurgling noise may be heard if the flexible pipe is
pinched.
If no steam is produced, if a gurgling sound is heard or if the water
is dripping through the holes of the steam head, raise the steam
hose occasionally to remove condensation inside.
Use extreme care at all times.
